This blog is the daily musings of Esthernow, her adventures in the Washington, D.C. area, and the things she discovers along the way.

About Esthernow:

She is adventurous, loyal and a friendly DC-area native.

Esthernow is someone who at times lets the melancholy part of her soul sneak out and who can get so swept away with living that she just has to stop and write it all out.

In addition, she is a journalist, an arts lover, an international traveler, a crocheter, a singer, the proud owner of a dog and bird, a nature lover (particularly of plant life, wind and water), a dancer and perhaps sometimes still a bit of a child at heart.

    Esther,
    Just read the article in the Post about the M.C. I also always read the comments sent to articles that I find interesting. Obviously it is there that I read yours and then checked this site. I sang with the Chorale and the Singers for eight years in the mid-eighties. What wonderful memories. Some of the very best in my life. Since that first Christmas concert that I sang, “Once in Royal David’s City” became my favorite carol. Just wanted to commiserate with someone that sounded like they felt the same as I do. Wasn’t it fun!

    Thanks Michael. Yeah I do love that carol in particular and also “Angels we have heard on high,” and the happy feelings of the holiday music, even though holiday music is not as challenging and thrilling to master as, say, Bach’s Mass in b minor.

    I might have met you as my mother has been in the choir since the early 80s, although you probably don’t remember a little blonde-haired girl who used to sneak backstage after concerts to see my mom and to get autographs if a soloist impressed me. That was well before 9/11 when they closed off the backstage.

    It’s sad but I’m also going to miss snarfing down food in the underground Kennedy Center staff-cafeteria right before dashing to a dress-rehearsal.

    Hello Esther – I have read all your entries and found them very moving. (I have sung with choruses almost non-stop since 1960.) The concert the other night was fantastic–an amazing inaugural concert. Attended the workshop in the afternoon with a group of friends from Richmond VA–what a banquet of music the day provided! Thank you for your insights into the birth of this new group and the history of its conception.
